Few more pics from our trip to the Kabini River Lodge by Jungle Lodges and Resorts which is run in collaboration with forest Dept of Karnataka govt.
That red cottage stay was fun though super expensive, but the whole stay including the Jeep & boat safaris were super well organized and this made it a pleasant stay with 3 young kids. And awesome food too.
October is supposed to be a good season for visiting Kabini, but the weather was super cloudy with light rains. Wish we had gone much later in the year....but overall a good experience.
We were supposed to go for our boat Safari on Saturday by 615am, with wake up call at 545am followed by tea before leaving.
I missed my own phone alarm and the wake up call which was just a knock on the door; woke up at 620 and imagine the horror I felt at that moment... Anyway it all ended well because the Safari boat was still there at the jetty and we could get on it...a selfie to remember that morning.
Saw lots of birds, but no animals. The recent rains provide enough water sources inside the forest and there is no need for them to come to the river.
Red-wattled Lapwing (Teetar in Hindi): This is the bird that has a humorous riddle after its name in Hindi which says: Teetar k do age Teetar, Teetar k do pichhe Teetar, age Teetar pichhe Teetar, bolo kitne Teetar?
Asian Openbill Stork, the monochromatic species, as the name suggest, is with conspicuous gap in its unusual shape Bill that allows the bird to get a tight hold to freshwater Golden Apple Snail, it's preferred food. Moreover, it feeds on frogs, mollusks and large aquatic insects.
Because I can't run yet, I want to go and do some other fun, what feels good!! Koska en vielä voi juosta, halusin virkistää mieltä ja päätin lähtee viikko sit hyppii laivan reunalta välimereen, Kyprokselle! Ihan parasta! Ja oli aivan ihana alottaa joka aamu aamu-uinnilla kirkkaassa vedessä ja viettää rento viikko serkun kaa auringon alla! Virtaa sai! Nyt onkin sit tällä vkolla otettu taas aika tehokkaaseen käyttöön ja paahettu aamusta iltaan edellisenkin edestä, duunattu päivät urheiluopistolla ja illat kuntosaleilla ja jatkettu omia vesi- ja voimareenejä,jotka etenee hyvää vauhtia! .........Siispä, hyvää weekendii!! Ja jos oot duunis,ni nii oon määki, eikä haittaa! :) #jump#sea#boatsafari#cyprus#wildandfree#life
Floating quietly along the water on a boat safari is a magical experience in Selous. In the heat of the afternoon giraffe come to the lake for a drink. You may even see large herds of elephant crossing the water channels to lush islands. 📷 Lake Manze Camp
